Description

MLK 2017|18 Visiting Speaker, Chinese American documentray film maker, author, poet, Asian storyteller, educator and community therapist Lee Mun Wah leads multiple events including the workshop "An Unfinished Conversation: Diveristy Conversations in the Classroom", the student dinner/diagloue "How to Have a Dialogue Across Cultures", the lecture "Only A World Away!" and the lecture/film screening "If These Halls Could Talk". "It is Lee Mun Wah’s belief that we cannot wait until tomorrow for some charismatic leader to appear who will bring us all together. We each must take a stand and personally participate in this important journey of confronting our fears and beginning a conversation not only with those we love but also with those we have been taught to fear. We cannot continue being separate and unequal without there being a cost to each and every generation. Our survival and the very future of our children depend on all of us embracing our differences as well as our mutuality. If we can accomplish this in our lifetime, we can then look back and know that we have found a way to live together authentically and harmoniously, using and honoring all of our gifts and special contributions. To Lee Mun Wah, that is the true meaning of multiculturalism." - Stirfry Seminars and Consulting
